NETHERLANDS: The announcement of the Borselle auction results was greeted by the offshore wind industry with a mixture of astonishment, delight, and (from competitors) a little concern. Dong Energy had beaten the €100/MWh levelised cost of energy (LCOE) barrier well ahead of schedule.
FINLAND: Much is at stake for Finland's first commercial offshore wind farm, the €120-million 40MW Tahkoluoto project in the Gulf of Bothnia, in the north of the Baltic Sea, west of Finland.

THE NETHERLANDS: The Dutch government has restructured the tender process to achieve quicker results and cut costs.
UK: New build cemented the UK's position as offshore market leader, and two major turbine manufacturers are setting up production facilities in the country. But a new support system is creating uncertainty, particularly for the biggest developments.
